ELECTRIC MOONS FOR THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF PLOT MAGAZINE

ELECTRIC MOONS presented during the 10th anniversary of PLOT magazine is an immersive kinetic installation that celebrates the power of light and lightness in the magnificent settings of St. Maria Church in Stuttgart, Germany. The large-scale art piece is a new colour version of Christopher Bauder’s first large-scale installations, this time specially constructed for the imposing church environment — a setting where an interplay of light and space has been a foundational experience for centuries.

The weightless light balloons of ELECTRIC MOONS are moving precisely and effortlessly in the centre of the deemed church, synchronised with minimal music and surrounded by the mesmerised audience.  For this project, the creative direction of WHITEvoid was wholly supported by the technical expertise and latest products of Kinetic Lights — a new advanced version of their helium-filled Balloon adjusted to a precise ground-based network of winches.

SKALAR – Art Installation and Performance at Kraftwerk Berlin

SKALAR – REFLECTIONS ON LIGHT AND SOUND

SKALAR is a large-scale art installation that explores the complex impact of light and sound on human perception. Light artist Christopher Bauder and musician Kangding Ray give an audio-visual narration of radiant light vector drawings and multi-dimensional sound inside the pitch-dark industrial space of Kraftwerk Berlin. By combining a vast array of kinetic mirrors, perfectly synchronized moving lights and a sophisticated multi-channel sound system, SKALAR reflects on the fundamental nature and essence of basic human emotions. With its titular Turmoil theme, CTM Festival 2018 sets the perfect environment to launch the artistic venture of SKALAR.

ART EXHIBITION: 27.01. – 25.02.2018
6 LIVE PERFORMANCES: 04.02.2018 + 24.02.2018 + 25.02.2018
